Simulated Office Education: Course of Study: Teacher's Manual and Student's Manual.
Utah State Board for Vocational Education, Salt Lake City.
Two separate manuals give detailed instructions for setting up and carrying out simulated office practice. The simulation design covers all office skills and all kinds of office situations, from management decisions to ground rules for coffee breaks and includes handling rush jobs. Procedures and roles for seven office positions, from vice president to clerk, in banking, insurance, and general office work are covered in a set of task sheets and procedure manuals in the student's guide. A section of the teacher's manual is keyed to this aspect of the simulation, and other sections contain information relating simulations to specific office skills; units of study and suggested modules for breaking down concepts into components and sequences; time frames; detailed rotation schedules to enable students to take all roles; and lists of facilities, forms, and equipment needed in order of priority and in relation to various simulations. A point system is described for evaluating student work. Instructions include briefing and debriefing, interviewing for positions, warmup, lists and reproductions of documents and specific information needed for each simulation, and narrative explanations of situations and procedures. Descriptions include information such as names of customers or clients and their personal histories and attitudes. (MDW)
